Visit Curtis Couch for properly sterilized and safe dentistry
With recent health scares stemming from improperly sterilized dental tools it’s important to visit a dentist who cares about your health as well as your teeth
There has been some shocking and disturbing news lately involving the contraction of HIV caused by improper sterilization at a dentist practice in Tulsa. According to recent investigation there has been a large number of patients exposed to serious life-threatening infectious diseases including HIV, hepatitis B and C. The number is estimated to be a whopping 7,000 people exposed with further investigations pending. This type of shoddy dental treatment is a shame to the dental industry and it saddens us here at Curtis Couch to think that people may now choose to avoid the dentist because of this.
We would never mistreat our patients
This news has truly affected dentistry and has called for a nationwide re-evaluation of sterilization standards. Curtis Couch located in Thousand Oaks has always valued and upheld strong and solid sterilization standards. We have never put our convenience ahead of our patients’ health and we will continue with these standards indefinitely. We believe patient neglect is the worst possible thing in the health industry and utter disregard for personal and professional hygiene is disgusting and a vile trait.
Visit a clean and sterile environment to ensure your dental health
In order to ensure your health you still need to maintain a twice-annual visit to your dentist. You can rest assured that Curtis Couch will only provide the highest quality of dental service with emphasis on correct dental hygiene and sterilization of instruments and equipment. Although you may be shocked by the news (we know we are!) we still firmly recommend that you come and visit our surgery twice a year to ensure optimum health as regular check-ups ensure that any signs of oral cancer, periodontitis, overcrowding and gingivitis are caught early.
It is important to catch these illnesses or complications early to ensure your optimum dental and general health. Periodontitis is a leading cause of tooth loss and even death in the United States.
America is expected to suffer a whopping 42,000 cases of periodontitis this year, with just under 100 cases diagnosed per day. This common illness can be fatal and is sadly often caught late in development as people are avoiding the dentist. This is the pinnacle reason why you should not avoid your dentist and you can rest assured that Curtis Couch will make you feel as calm as possible with our sedation options and comforting and caring environment.
